By Kenny Stocker>

From the rugged trails of the Lake District to the serene lanes of the Cotswolds, England offers a plethora of cycling adventures that cater to every type of cyclist. Whether you're a seasoned mountain biker, a road cycling enthusiast, a gravel grinder, a cycle tourist, or a bikepacker, there is a world of opportunity to explore England on two wheels.

Sonder's Epic Rides: Exploring England on two wheels

Join us in celebrating the spirit of adventure and exploration that cycling in England embodies.

The verdant landscapes, historic pathways, and charming countryside of England offer a rich backdrop for cyclists.

Our "Epic Rides" aims to capture the spirit of cycling in England—the personal achievements, the moments of connection, and the deep appreciation for the country's natural and historical beauty.

Amongst these epic rides you will travel through England's picturesque villages, rolling hills, and ancient forests. Whether it's navigating the serene landscapes of the Cotswolds, tackling the peaks of the Lake District, or finding a challenge like The Dales Divide, "Everyone has a story, what's yours?".

Mountain Biking: Tackle the trails

England's mountain biking trails traverse through woodlands, moorlands, and national parks. The Lake District and the Peak District are prime spots for mountain bikers, offering trails that cater to all levels of experience. From challenging routes like the Jennride to family-friendly routes, the varied terrain ensures an exhilarating ride against the backdrop of some of England's most dramatic landscapes.

Road Biking: Cruise the countryside

Spring is the ideal time to enjoy road biking in England, as the countryside awakens with vibrant colours and milder temperatures. The country's extensive network of quiet, scenic roads makes it a road cyclist's paradise. Routes like the coast-to-coast journey from the Irish Sea to the North Sea offer a challenging yet rewarding experience, with stunning coastal views, quaint villages, and historic landmarks along the way.

Gravel Biking: Explore off the beaten path

For those who crave adventure beyond the paved roads, England's gravel biking scenes are not to be missed. The South Downs Way offers over 100 miles of gravel paths that take you through rolling hills and ancient woodlands, providing a perfect blend of physical challenge and natural beauty. Spring's longer days and drier weather conditions make it an excellent time for gravel biking adventures.

Cycle Touring: Discover England's coastline

Cycle touring allows you to fully appreciate the beauty of England's landscapes at a leisurely pace. Routes like the Yorkshire Coast Route not only offer breathtaking scenery but also a journey through England's rich history, from Roman forts to medieval castles. With the warmer weather and longer daylight hours, cycle touring is a fantastic way to explore the country's heritage sites, national parks, and coastal areas.

Bikepacking: Adventure Awaits

Bikepacking combines cycling with minimalist camping, offering the ultimate adventure for those looking to immerse themselves in England's wild spaces. The Pennine Bridleway stretches across the heart of England, offering a mix of off-road trails, country lanes, and rugged terrains. Spring brings this route to life, with wildflowers, wildlife, and the lush greenery of the English countryside providing a stunning backdrop for your journey.

Whether you're navigating the technical trails of a mountain bike route, handcycling around Britain, getting out for the pure joy of it or embarking on a multi-day bikepacking expedition, this is your invitation to explore the beauty and diversity of England on two wheels.
